This is the first Big Dance ever for the Roadrunners while the Sooners advanced to the Sweet 16 last season.

CSU Bakersfield does not have a big time scorer, but they have 5 players that are averaging in double figures led by C Aly Ahmed. The top 2 scorers for the Roadrunners are frontcourt players, but it is key that they drain the rock from outside.
Dedrick Basile is averaging 14.5 ppg in the 5-game winning streak and he and Damiyne Durham may have to make it rain 3-pointers for CSUB to have any chance to pull off the big upset.
The Roadrunners are 3-0 this season at neutral site games.
CSU Bakersfield’s D will be tested in this game by the Sooners’ offense, which ranks 24th in the nation in scoring.
They are led by likely Wooden Award winner Buddy Hield he is the 2-time Big 12 Player of the Year and is averaging 25 ppg. The top 3 scorers for Oklahoma are guards, so the Roadrunners will have to play solid perimeter defense in this game.
Oklahoma had won 3 straight games and 5 of their last 6 games before falling to West Virginia.
The top 4 scorers for the Sooners have started the last 100 games together so they have experience and they will not get rattled in this game even facing a solid Roadrunners’ defense.
